Membership fees keep the Group going

Subscriptions

Subscriptions are not paid until the young person feels that Scouts is right for them, and they are invested. The combined Group Subscription and Scout Association Annual Membership fee is collected monthly by the Online Scout Manager system that the Group use - details of this and the My.SCOUT facility will be sent to you when your child joins the Group.

The current monthly subscription is 10 -  this meets the cost of:

  • the day-to-day cost of running the Section that your child is in
  • the running expenses of Wedmore Scout Group, including the upkeep of the Scout Den and equipment
  • support from the Moors & Coastal Scout District, and Somerset County Scout Association
  • the Scout Association's annual membership fee, which includes insurance cover for individuals while on approved Scout activities.

GiftAid

Parents are encouraged to participate in the Gift Aid Scheme, which is managed on behalf of the Group by the Online Scout Manager (OSM), as this allows tax to be reclaimed and used by the Group.

A Gift Aid declaration is not a legal document and does not ask you to commit to paying the membership subscription for a set period. It can be cancel at any time. However, by completing a Gift Aid declaration, which will be forwarded to you via OSM,  the Group is able to recover tax from your child's subscriptions.
